Let's Get Mindful for a Moment

The pressures of modern life may seem relentless, but there are proven routines and techniques for calming the mind. Join us in the lobby of 1200 First St. NE on February 11 at 6:00 p.m. for our second Nerds in NoMa event, when we'll discuss ways to achieve some inner peace. Our panelists include Jessie Taylor of the The Mindfulness Center, Ana Ka'ahanui of Capital Nature, Emma Kingsley of Lady Farmer, and Alisha Lineswala of Yoga NoMa. Plus: Tasty refreshments courtesy of Laos in Town. Say it with us now: NoMmmmmmmmma.

Also: Download the transcript from our first Nerds, Once Upon a Time: Stories from the Neighborhood.

Science + Beer = Fun

Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar® sounds like the beginning of a bad joke, but it's actually a fun program created by the Fleet Science Center in San Diego that LabX is bringing to local bars on February 6, including Red Bear Brewing. During the 7:00–9:00 p.m. event at Red Bear, two local scientists — one a specialist in astronomy/space physics, the other a geoscience/geothermal energy expert — will enjoy something we all do: good conversation and refreshing brews. They'll be easy to spot; just look for the sign that says: "We are scientists. Ask us anything!"

Can't Make It to the Slopes?

That's OK — you can still celebrate as if you did. This weekend kicks off Wunder Garten's third annual Après Ski Party, running every weekend for the rest of February. Guests can conjure their inner ski bum with a selection of seasonal beers and cocktails, fire pits flanked by outdoor lounges, alpine-inspired art installations, and much, much more. Find complete details at the beer garden's website

Are You Excited About V-Day?

We’re getting everyone in the Valentine’s Day spirit a day early with hot beverages, sweet treats, live performances, and free cards (while supplies last)! On February 13 from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m., you'll find us at the CNN plaza on First Street or by the NoMa-Gallaudet Metro stop on N Street. Stop by and choose a beautiful card from Second Story Cards to write your message to that special someone. (Should it rain that morning, the event will be canceled.)
